The Rough-Legged Hawk is found mainly in the arctic and subarctic regions of North America and Eurasia, migrating south in winter. They are one of the few large birds of prey known to regularly hover and feed on lemmings, voles, and small mammals and birds. A vole, a small rodent and relative of the mouse, leaves a runway marked with feces and urine only detectable by ultraviolet light. There is evidence that rough-legged hawks are able to see the ultraviolet range and quickly scan large areas to determine vole populations.
